Bangladesh reject invitation to tour Pakistan

Bangladesh have refused to tour Pakistan for a proposed two-match T20I series sometime before July this year.

On Friday, Jalal Younis, the BCB’s media and communication committee chairman, told Dhaka Tribune that, “the reports were not satisfactory enough due to which we had to pull back.”

Pakistan are scheduled to tour Bangladesh in July and the PCB is seeking a part of the revenue generated from the series. They believe they are owed compensation for the BCB rejecting invitations to play in Pakistan for the last six years.

“We want to host Bangladesh but its chances are not bright,” PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan had said recently. “Some of our friends think they may tour but I feel they will not because of political concerns more than security concerns. But during ICC meeting I will speak to my Bangladesh counterpart and may re-negotiate our tour to Bangladesh this year and ask them to compensate us for not touring Pakistan.”
